"Just as many writers reserve a space on their book shelves for the thin but essential work of William Strunk and E.B. White, a similar space should be hallowed out for The Web Style Guide."―John Mello, HR Today

"Lynch and Horton offer an informative book for Web designers who want to go beyond HTML to consider specific information architecture issues. The discussion on the use of tables for creating editorial layouts is particularly well written and important."―Choice

In the beginning the book covers the whole web design process of a medium to large web design project. Further, it moves on into guides and examples of creating sitemaps, structure, moving on to individual elements like headers, navbars, content areas, button, fonts and graphics and so on.
The book includes a large number of helpful illustrations, schemes and screenshots. Definitely recommend!
My favorite part is in the beginning -- "Site Production Checklist" -- save you time, money and cranium!
Very easy and quick to read reminds of some very simple and basic principles often overlooked because the Site has to be made as of "Yesterday". This books promotes the discipline of planning before actually plundging into the trenches.
I recommend this book if you take this book as what it says it is -- nothing more, nothing less.
